President Alger and the senior leaders are pleased to implement a modified summer work schedule for James Madison University for 2024.

The university will adopt a modified summer schedule beginning Monday, May 13 and ending Friday, August 9, 2024.

  • University hours of business operation will be 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Monday – Thursday.
  • University hours of business operation will be 8:00 a.m. – noon on Friday.
  • Full-time employees must work a 40-hour workweek or use leave to make up the difference.  Not doing so could jeopardize JMU's ability to provide modified summer scheduling.
  • Employees may work past noon on Fridays to fulfill their 40-hour workweek.
  • Alternate work schedules that meet the 40-hour workweek are acceptable with supervisory approval.
  • Departments and supervisors who have employees working an adjusted schedule after noon on Fridays will determine customer service expectations.

  • Full-time employee work schedules will need to be adjusted during the Memorial Day and Juneteenth workweeks to account for the eight-hour holidays. For the Independence Day holiday, work schedules will need to be adjusted to account for the eight-hour holiday on July 4 and the four-hour holiday on July 5.  The workweek (taking designated holiday hours into account) must equal 40 hours. See Holiday Schedule and University Closings
  • All leave requests are subject to supervisor’s approval.
